Quiet Study for Students

The Library has partially reopened to students as of March 22, 2021. We are currently offering 56 individual, socially-distanced study spaces in five reading rooms of the Hunt (old) Wing of the Library from Monday, March 22 through Thursday, May 6. We are open Sunday through Friday, from 3 to 8 p.m

Access to study spaces is available to students participating in Oxy’s twice-weekly surveillance testing protocol by reservation only. You should reserve your seat in advance by visiting our reservation system.

*Please be aware that your card access to the Academic Commons ends at 7:30 pm. If you are already in the building but need to step out for any reason and wish to reenter after 7:30 pm, a library staff member will let you back inside. If there are any issues, contact us at (323) 259-2640.

Curbside Pickup for Students, Staff and Faculty

Curbside pickup for books is available to students, staff and faculty on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays between 1:00 and 4:00pm.
